Well, my New Year´s Resolution to one-up 2010 has been going well so far. I spent the second doing downhill mountain biking in Picol, near San Jeronimo, Cusco. We took a cab 800m up to the mountain and flew down steep trails on bikes. My ride was going fantasically until my brake started sticking… The result being this:
This past weekend, I settled on trying to sneak into Sacsayhuaman and White Water Rafting. Not to bad eh? I spent Saturday morning walking around the small villages surrounding Sacsayhuaman and climbing rocks until I got into the main section of these spectacular ruins.
Then yesterday, we headed up to Huambutio to go white water rafting on a III+ river with a coworker´s husband. After two hours on the river / rapids, I was exhausted from paddling, but more excited to do it again on a IV river the next time!
